LTS Camera and NVR Tested

By: John Scanlan, Published on Jul 25, 2016

LTS is one of the fastest rising manufacturers / OEMs in North America. 

We recently bought and tested the LTN8704-P4LTS, a 4 channel NVR, along with the LTS CMIP3024W-28, a 4MP turret camera.

We tested them against similar specified products from Hikvision, who is reported to be their OEM but with different 'firmware', to see what was different and how LTS stacked up.

kT&C is another version of hikvision doing the same thing.

LTS is HIK so i would expect there to be almost the same results and look and feel the same with a more "budget" feel

Are there any re-branders that have any real significant differences? Seems most of it has been only cosmetic and a few defaults changed.

Are there any re-branders that have any real significant differences?

From what we have seen, not typically. They have lots of OEMs and we have not tested them all but the pattern we clearly see is minor changes at best.

Does anyone know if the streams are encrypted or secured?
